In this episode, Carmen G. Gonzalez, Morris I. Leibman Professor of Law at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, discusses her article "Climate Change, Race, and Migration," which is published in the Journal of Law and Political Economy. Gonzalez begins by explaining the relationship between capitalism and climate change. She observes that the global North has a moral obligation to address climate change. And she argues that the current models for addressing the problem are inadequate. She advocates for an approach based on self-determination.
